Venice Beach Music Fest 11

Full day of art, music, and dance, featuring top-tier local and international talent. Headlined by rock and roll violinist Lili Haydn, and Greg Douglass of the Steve Miller Band! This, a samba parade, community outreach, hula hoops, and lots moreā€”free for all, right in the heart of Venice!

VENICE, CA - The annual Venice Beach Music Fest music and arts festival celebrates a decade of totally free music, art, literature, and dance at the beach on Saturday, August 27, 2016, from 11:00 A.M. to 7:30 P.M. in Windward Plaza Park (1 Windward Avenue, between the boardwalk and the bike trail). The festival, sister to the Venice Spring Fling, is and always has been free and open to the public, made possible by local and national businesses. The free music will continue at an after-show following the festival at Danny’s Venice from 8:00 P.M. - 1:00 A.M.

Venice Beach Music Fest 11 is proud to support the arts by hosting an art show that is free for selected independent artists.

Producer Milton Rosenberg, in his eleventh year of free festival production in the community, notes that this year’s Venice Beach Music Fest celebration is a special one. "I couldn’t be prouder of the world-class level of talent we are able to offer the people of Venice, right here in our backyard. This festival was inspired by the original intent of Abbot Kinney: for Venice as a place to celebrate music, art, dance, and life, right here at the Pacific Ocean. Venice Beach Music Fest celebrates the creative spirit in all of us."

The free Venice Beach Music Fest 11 is made possible by generous donations from these local and national sponsors that continue to prove their dedication to arts preservation in our community.
